Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you have trouble finding mozzarella pearls or bocconcini, you can purchase a larger ball of mozzarella and cut into small pieces.
  • tip 2
    Can’t find farro? Pearled barley or wheat berries can be substituted. Cook the grains as directed on package.
